Honestly, probably not. We only support a single version of fop,
and there's nothing wrong with allowing user-config.jam to override
fop settings from site-config.jam.

I have this:

        using fop : /home/ghost/local/XEP/xep : /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun ;

and it appears to work. On the other hand, I never tried to set name of
the java executable. If it's broken now, then feel free to either fix it with
your patch, or remove this functionality.
